SALT LAKE CITY (BrainShare 2007) – 19 Mar 2007 – Reaffirming its commitment to delivering a single, real-time view of security and compliance activities across the entire enterprise, Novell today introduced the latest version of SentinelTM, its award-winning security information and event management solution. Representing a significant update from previous versions, Sentinel from Novell® version 6.0 offers new capabilities for automating real-time monitoring of the enterprise security environment, identifying and remediating security incidents and documenting regulatory compliance.
Sentinel from Novell gathers and correlates security and non-security information from across an organization’s networked infrastructure, including data from identity and access management products such as Novell Identity Manager and Novell Access Manager, as well as third-party systems, devices and applications. Sentinel helps make sense out of the collected data, identifies security or compliance issues, and tracks remediation activities, streamlining previously error-prone processes and building a more rigorous and secure management program. When deployed with Novell Identity Manager 3.5 and Novell Access Manager 3, enterprise customers have access to a complete, integrated identity and security management solution for supporting IT compliance and governance requirements.
“Effective management of security events and incidents in an enterprise environment requires flexible real-time monitoring that easily integrates with identity and access management solutions,” said Kent Erickson, vice president and general manager for Identity and Security Management at Novell. “Novell’s automated information and event management security solution provides a holistic view of an organization’s systems, people and processes. Sentinel 6 builds upon the award-winning capabilities seen in earlier versions, offering increased platform and localized language support and new capabilities in correlation, incident management workflow and its data connectivity framework.”
Enhancements to Sentinel 6 include:
Sentinel 6 will be generally available in May 2007. For more information about Sentinel from Novell, visit http://www.novell.com/products/sentinel.
